8.5 hours one way for me. The budget won't allow that at $4/gallon. Sounds like I'll be missing a great time. :(

Hey Smitty! Why don't you find some unfortunate soul to bring along for the 8.5 hr. ride. We call it carpooling, hitchn' a ride, sharing. :lol:

Hmmm .... now you got me thinkin' ... 8-)

That would be one hell of a long day on that little bike though. I'm sure I could do it, but I wouldn't be of much use once I got there. And you just CANNOT ride that bike at anything less than full bore! :lol:

All my buddies are in either in the same boat I'm in, or they have kids & soccer games. :lol: I can't catch a break!


I'd love to get down there & pound beers with all you fine gentlemen, but gotta keep the wrenches turning here so the mortgage gets paid. This year is going to be a tough one financially. Everything under the sun is going up. Just got a letter from insurance company -- they want another $150 to cover state mandated oil cleanup insurance! Grrrr!

I'll keep trying the lotto ....... then, by the next meet n greet I'll be living nearby! :idea: Gotta get out of this hellhole ....

Yea, I'm about 90% sure I'm coming too. I'd probably come Friday and stay at the same place in Pottsville I stayed last time, if I could remember where that was. :wacko: What was the name of the place where we all met in the morning last time John? Ramada? Holiday inn? I think I may have killed those brain cells.

It's the Ramada. If I come I will also come up Friday. I'll drive the truck with trailer and also buy coal.

Here's the hotel link:

For those wanting to see Yuengling Brewery the production bottling line does not operate on weekends. You might want to come up early on Friday.
